Emily Reid

Floating To Escape

I float in a pool of darkness
Cold presses in on me
I am alone
Floating aimlessly
I reach for sparks of hope
But rather than warm
They only burn
I ache with sorrow
I hunger to leave
To escape
To leave this prison
I crave to be free
To be heard
To be loved

    you're poem flows with simple truth. I love it. Always remember that darkness is the path to light, with out light would be dull, with it light is perfect and magnificant!

    Darkness is but a pathway thru light of a different nature...the only thing to fear in the dark is fear itself...don't believe that but it seems to help at times...i am a dark writer and a lost love and such as well...so the darkness does not cause me fear...i am your opposite..i fear the light because then i can see the fear as it steps up to me.... ~^..^
